Pew Religion Quiz, Game of Thrones, Road Rage & the Beatles (Commando CultureCast)

We didn’t have a guest this week, so we decided to take a Pew poll on religion. We got all of the questions right! And by “we”, I mean “me”, because Amy and Christian got one wrong. The poll itself shouldn’t be too difficult for listeners, but the statistics afterward about how various faith groups scored definitely is astonishing.

In the Echo Chamber, we talk primarily about Game of Thrones but also about 20 other shows that we’re into including (but not limited to) Amish MafiaDownton AbbeyBilly On The StreetHomelandShamelessDuck Dynasty and Justified. Between the three of us, we watch far too much TV.

Later, Christian recommends More or Less: Choosing a Lifestyle of Excessive Generosity by Jeff Shinaberger, which is about simplifying life and reorienting our consumptive life. Then Amy calls out Christian for his “agro-driving”, and I was torn because I’m prone to road rage, but Christian DID tailgate a student driver. Then Amy convinces me to convert to their church because their sermons are only 10 minutes long, which is probably as close to heaven as you can get in church. Also, we talk about our favorite albums, Beatles and otherwise.
